A riveting story! You really drew the listener in and made them wait for the punishment scene just long enough to have impact when it came! You managed to convey what it must have been like for a naughty schoolgirl to be punished. Although I was expecting the cane to be applied to the bottom, you made the hand caning sound even more harsh....the only time I saw a hand caning was when at primary school and a boy was caned over the hand in front of the whole school for being found in the girls' toilet! He moved his hand after the second stroke trying to avoid the cane. The headmistress roared at him that if he did that again she would haul his trousers and pants down, bend him over her desk and thrash his bottom instead. He kept his hand up after that!
